Keep your speed down
You shouldn’t exceed the maximum speed that your vehicle recommends for winter tyres – it’s often lower than that of summer tyres.
Check the tyres for wear
Check your tyre pressure and tread depth regularly. Goodyear recommends a minimum tread depth of 4mm for winter tyres to ensure optimal performance, but in colder countries where using winter tyres is mandatory, tread depth will be specified by law.
Use a higher gear to start and pull away
Spinning your wheels can dig the vehicle deeper into the snow.
Don’t ‘pump’ your brakes
If you have anti-lock brakes, keep a steady pressure on the brake pedal instead.
